Description David Binderman 2005-06-30 09:45:44 UTC
Description of problem:

I just tried to compile package evolution-2.2.2-5 from Redhat
Fedora Core development tree with the gcc 4.0.0 compiler and
the compiler flag -Wall.

The compiler said

e-plugin.c:93: warning: comparisons like X<=Y<=Z do not have their mathematical

The source code is

        if ((state == 0) == ep_check_enabled(id) == 0)

This is really bizarre code. Suggest code rework for maintainability.

Thanks for this report.  I agree that this code looks suspect.  I'll try to get
this fixed upstream.

Bug still present in latest version in CVS, and in latest rawhide package.
